Joss Stone doing fine after alleged murder plot

Brit singer Joss Stone was reportedly at the center of a kidnapping ploy a week ago, but the 24-year-old now says that she’s doing a-ok.

Last week, British paper The Sun reported that two men carrying swords, rope and a body bag were arrested outside of Stone’s home under suspicion of being connected to an alleged kidnapping and murder plot.

The songstress said in a statement last Wednesday that she was “absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal while the police continue with their inquiries,” and added to PopEater in an interview on Tuesday that she's unfazed.

“They didn’t manage it so it’s all good,” Stone said. “I’m fine.”

The singer’s next album, "LP1," arrives July 26.

    I was reading the comments but maybe I should pay attention more. What does Saudi Arabian have to do with Joss Stone specifically? I happy she's "fine" but that would've freaked me out unless it is just a publicity stunt.

      Since 2001 famous singers have been lining up to sing with her and she's sold millions of albums. And you call her terrible? You are welcome to your opinion, but she is a highly talented and well respected singer. I can't wait to hear her album in July and the SuperHeavy album in the fall.

    For those of you asking "who is she"....she is an anazingly talented singer along the lines of Janis Joplin..she usually sings barefoot and is a very cool chic. However she lives in England and cares more about MUSIC than being a pop star or doing interviews, which is why you've never heard of her. Peace 🙂

    @Idiots – have you ever thought that not everyone saw this on the news and did not get all the information that you got? From what I read, this happened in England and not the middle east, so, for you to call ppl hillbillies because they did not get all the information that you got, you need to get off your high horse and stop thinking you are better than anyone else on here. I don't see anywhere on here explaining who these guys are or where they are from.

  27. hey now!

    England = gun control = swords for stupid criminals that can't find a gun. Saudi Arabia = oil for the US= public beheadings and no civil rights just fine by gearhead redneck America. Glad miss Stone is OK and not living in Saudi Arabia...she'd probably get her feet lopped off for singing barefooted and carrying a tune.

      They were from Manchester, about 200 miles from her home in Devon, and were caught while driving a little red Fiat. Handguns are fairly hard to come by in England, even if you are from a city once known as Gunchester. I wonder if they were Somali immigrants?

    The Saudi Arabian government beheaded an Indonesian maid for killing her Saudi boss after years of abuse. Indonesia responded by banning its citizens from working as maids in Saudi Arabia. This story isn't being reported in American media (I read it on BBC) because the Media/Government cabal doesn't want to offend our "friend" Saudi Arabia by informing U.S. citizens of untidy facts. Facts like the 9/11 hijackers all came from Saudi Arabia after being indoctrinated in Wahhabi philosophy. Saudi Arabia - a country where people still get beheaded on accusations of "witchcraft"

    Go back to sleep you your hamburgers, sip your cola and keep thinking about Britney Spears and other important topics your culture commands you to pay attention to.,

      The Saudi people get the government they deserve. I have no sympathy for them, we should not acknowledge the government or the people of that wasteland. They are trash, as is every aspect of their animal culture.
